New Theme

PawsPaws PurrRPGamer Staff
edited August 2011 in Forum Rules & Announcements
Thanks to Sabin and myself*, we now have an RPGamer theme, hurray! If you don't see it, check your profile options to ensure you're on the default skin.

If you have any feedback, we'd love to hear it. Except the logo. We will be fixing that, and yes we know it's currently ughly.

*my contribution was playing FF3 SNES and commenting on colours.

    It looks nice! My only issue is that sometimes there is red text on the brown (for instance, in the Previous Thread || Next Thread section,) and that's very difficult to read.

    I've gotten so used to the blue colors that the brown ones look ugly to me now. 8-(

    You can use the default skin if you want. Go to Settings -> General Settings.

    Took me a couple hours to get used to it, but I'm fine with how it looks now.

    I like it. Makes it fit better with the main site.

    Do you see that red-on-brown anywhere else? It will help us* identify where the colour may be shared.

    I hope you guys don't take this the wrong way, but after browsing for a while, I can safely say that I've no love for this color scheme. Feels like one of those "high contrast" theme settings that come with Windows that no one in their right mind would ever use.

    It's also up on top of threads, the "View First Thread" text is red on brown. At least, I think that's what it says. :)

    More specifically, it's the "firstunread" class in the CSS file. a.firstunread { color: white; } should take care of it.
    So long & thanks for all the fish!

    Oh, "View First Unread!" That makes more sense, and also underlines the fact that that text is hard to read. :D

    The theme currently has a tentative positive opinion of it on my part.

    I second what Becky said about the brown on red text being a little hard to read

    I'd like to point out the gray on light brown that's under the category headers.

    Love the new theme, very RPGamer in my eyes. Except the logo. But you know that :)

    "Mark All Forums Read" and "View Forum Leaders" links are red text on brown background. Same with "Previous Thread" "Next Thread". I think those are in the "navlinks" div.
    So long & thanks for all the fish!

    I made some changes to resolve most of these issues. The "View Unread Posts" is the hardest because I have no way of changing the link test in just that area, and I don't want to change the background color there to a non-gold color. The red font color definitely has some limitations to it.

    One more: View First Unread Post link is red on the gold color.

    a.firstunread { color: white} should take care of it?
